Transformed Traveler welcomes Todd Stocke to discuss- Bookstores change lives.

Hear Todd's passion for books and bookstores. You will be transformed by visits to:
Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville, Illinois, Shakespeare & Co. in Paris, City Lights in San Francisco, King's English in Salt Lake City, Powell's Bookstore in Portland, bookstores from movies such as Notting Hill, and Prairie Lights in Iowa City. And because Todd is partial to his hometown, Wild Rumpus in Minneapolis and Red Balloon Bookshop in St. Paul are not to be missed (hit the Red Balloon, then zip down the street to the Tavern on Grand for walleye and a Summit).

Todd is Vice president and editorial director of Sourcebooks, one of the world’s leading independent book publishers. As editorial director, he oversees all Sourcebooks imprints and the company’s acquisition efforts in every category, including adult nonfiction, adult fiction, romance novels, mixed-media, calendars, young adult, and children’s books.

He has overseen the growth of the Sourcebooks list from just a few new titles a year to its current annual output of 300+, with regular appearances on the New York Times and other bestsellers lists. Todd was editor of We Interrupt This Broadcast, the format-breaking mixed-media book that was a forerunner to today's best enhanced ebooks, and its follow-up, And The Crowd Goes Wild, one of the bestselling sports anthologies ever.
